MFTWSC260 You Keep Me Anchored

Hi all!  Hope you had a wonderful Christmas holiday with your family!  We had a lovely and quiet day at home.  The weather is unbelievably mild lately and the kiddos received scooters (the manual, use your feet kind) from Santa and they were able to use them outside.  I had a few crafty things on my wish list, as usual, but here’s the funny thing.  My husband shopped from an old list and luckily purchased something that I hadn’t bought in the meantime.  LOL!  My kiddos are getting to the age where they want to shop and pick out gifts on their own.  My son picked out the VersaFine Onyx ink pad I had on my list (new one, LOL) and the Let’s Get Nautical dies from MFT.  My husband gave me the coordinating Go Overboard stamp set.

Yesterday I got a little crafty time in and played along with the current MFT Card Challenge sketch.  I broke in my new stamps and dies right away.

I brought out my MISTI to stamp the anchor background in Electric Red.  To trim that piece out, I added in a touch of silver.  Then I cut two Stitched Circles from Black Licorice and two anchors – one from Electric Red and the other from a scrap of silver diagonally striped paper.  My black circles are popped up on dimensionals.  I glued down the anchors and applied Glossy Accents.  For my sentiment, I stamped it with my new VersaFine Onyx ink and embossed it with clear embossing powder. {Um, so much better than black embossing powder on Versamark!}  Then I cut it with a Pierced Fishtail Flags STAX, doubling it up to create the double edge.
